Olga was highly knowledgeable and fascinating. Enthusiasm about Sagrada Familia shows. Only improvement suggestion would be about helping those who are unfamiliar to the area actually reaching the Basilica; example: explicit directions for subway, taxi, bus and walking, to get to the Basilica.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Roger!! Was my pleasure! Suggestions are always welcome! My best regadrs to your family!

Olga gave a great tour of the Sangrada Familia Bascilica and Old Town Barcelona!

Olga is a gem! Very informative, resourceful and fun. We learned so much about the depth of history in Barcelona! Our tour took place during the Merce festival and she thoughtfully made a detour so we could see the parade giants and animals and learn about the event. She also provided restaurant suggestions and thoughts on other key sites. A wonderful 3 hours in and around the Gothic Quarter. Muchas Gracias, Olga!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review Karen, you have a wonderful family and I am glad to have meet you all and be your guide in Barcelona. Gracias!!

What a wonderful tour with Olga. She was very communicative before the tour to make sure we found her at the meeting point. This was very helpful. Olga gave a very interesting and informative tour. Her pace was just perfect for us. We had plenty of time to admire what we wanted and still see many of the sights in the Gothic Quarter. The information received at the Picasso Museum was also very interesting and made for an enjoyable tour. Olga has a real passion for this tour and it really showed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Diane! was my pleasure to show you our magnificent Picasso Museum in Barcelona!

Olga was a very good fit for us! Our group consisted of my 7 year old (who was still very jet lagged), my mother in law (who moves a little slower), and my husband and I. She designed a tour that was fun & interesting for our wide age range. We especially enjoyed taking so many different forms of public transportation!

Olga was terrific. My wife and I along with our granddaughter took the tour wit Olga. First and foremost she quickly related well with our granddaughter. Second, she was a delight to tour and spend the day with. She was very knowledgeable on the history of Spain as well as Catalonia and most important art history. We did the Picasso Trail and the Picasso museum with her and she opened our eyes about all that Picasso did and accomplished. We also did the Sagrada, she arranged a trip to the top. Terrific

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Howard!! It was my pleasure to meet you and your wonderful family. I had also a great day with you all ! thank You very much! See you soon!

Our family of seven, ages 40-74, took this trip with Olga, and we were very grateful to be with her. Her advice on timing helped us avoid most of the extensive crowds. She kept us on schedule while being sure we had plenty of time for reflection and prayer. We might have missed the phenomenal museum and appreciated her extensive knowledge of the priceless works. Included roomy and comfortable can accommodations. It was a perfect and memorable trip.

We, seven members of the same family, had three days in Barcelona and we chose this tour with Olga to start our first day. It was perfect. Our parents moved at a slower pace and Olga was perfectly happy to accommodate them. In fact, she was sweet to always make sure my father was ok. She knows the history of Barcelona well is and very proud of her city. Her enthusiasm was contagious. We loved the old part of town. I highly recommend Olga to anyone looking for a tour of Barcelona.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, thank you for your words and everything you teached me!! You know I loved beeing the private guide for your wonderful family and enjoyed also so much our time together. I wish you the best trip to Spain!!

Our family of 10 took 2 walking tours with Olga. We spent an afternoon at Segrada Familia Church and walked along the old town. Olga was very patient with the little ones in our tour (6, 8, 9 year olds) but she friend to include the teens as well. Very informative and clearly loved her home town. She even gave us suggestions on what other things to do when our own.
